SERVE Regional Forum on School Improvement, Proceedings (Tampa, Florida, October 6-9, 1996).
The first SERVE Regional Forum on School Improvement brought together 300 educators from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina. These proceedings include: introductory information on SERVE, an introduction to the forum, the forum agenda, comments from participants, summaries of the keynote presentations, and overviews of the conference's 10 themes or "strands." The themes were: (1) student assessment; (2) community involvement; (3) facilitating continual improvement; (4) literacy; (5) monitoring school progress and evaluation issues; (6) parent involvement and early childhood education; (7) professional development; (8) school organization and climate; (9) teacher research; and (10) technology for teaching and learning. Presenters included teams of teachers and school/district administrators who shared their practice-based knowledge and experiences, researchers who discussed the theories and findings supporting some current models and concepts for addressing school needs and affecting change, SERVE's field-based research and development partners who described authentic implementations of promising school improvement programs and processes, and specialists from other regional laboratories and federally-funded service centers. A resources and information section contains an address list of forum participants and registration information for the 1997 forum. (ND)
